The Asia Pacific Metrology Programme (APMP) is a grouping of national metrology institutes (NMIs) from the Asia-Pacific region engaged in improving regional metrological capability through the sharing of expertise and exchange of technical services among Member laboratories.
By 2023, APMP has 47 Full Members from 28 Economies and 14 Associate Members from 13 Economies.
Full membership is open to all NMIs within the Asia-Pacific Region.
A Full Member is an organisation responsible for maintaining the peak measurement standards for its economy within the Asia-Pacific Region.
There may be more than one Full Member per economy if there is more than one peak measurement standards laboratory. If there is more than one Full Member per economy then, the Members from that economy must nominate one Full Member organisation as the Principal Member.
Only the Principal Member per economy has the voting right in the General Assembly.
Associate membership is open to NMIs that have a special interest in and can make a special contribution to the activities of APMP.
An Associate Member is an organisation responsible for maintaining the peak measurement standards for its economy, which is located in a neighbouring region to the Asia-Pacific Region, or an organisation within the Region that is planning to maintain such standards in the future. There may be more than one Associate Member per economy.
Associate Members can participate in the APMP activities (TCs, DEC, and FGs work, TCIs/FGIs, GA and related meetings), but are not entitled to vote.
